Elizabeth Papp Stinson, Life Coach
I am a butterfly when it comes to writing, transforming words into beauty and pollinating all parts of myself and those around me. Majestically flittering and feeling my beauty touching the lives around me. This beauty attracting and awakening feelings within others that identify with mine and then opening the desire to spread their own wings and cross fertilize the world around ourselves.
Our words are the entryway into ourselves, speaking awakens the feelings.
My journey back to writing a few years ago not only pollinated but gave birth to a new me. The writing created a book of healing based upon reflections of my childhood. Taking me back to those original feelings, working through them and ultimately healing and releasing so much pain.
Writing was the start of the journey, bringing forth the words.
